History isn't just about politicians, generals and wars and social issues. It's about the whole mix of the human experience, and it should be. It's about medicine and music; it's about love and money; its about good times; bad times; about people you never heard of; places you never heard of; certainly about failure, sometimes about success. It's human. It's about life. And what makes it most compelling- I think- is that its because its about two great mysteries: People, and time.
